Just received the 8801. Other components are (1) Panasonic Plasma TV (2) Oppo 95 (3) Parasound CA51 5 channel Amp (4) REL powered subwoofer (5) Monitor Audio Gold Main, Center, and Right and Left Surround Speakers. HDMI cables are connected to TV and OPPO with a. Digital Cable to Comcast Cable Box for now until I get another HDMI cable. Ethernet Cable to PC and 8801 shows on computer as part of network. The OPPO HDMI connection is working since when I switch to BlueRay on the 8801 and TV I can see a CD play, but no sound.
Problems: (a) No sound from speakers. I believe I connected the Amp to the 8801 correctly, but maybe not. The amp worked fine with my previous set up; a McIntosh MX130 and MSD4 (b) The 8801 no longer displays the Set Up or anything when I switch to the HDMI channel connection on the TV, (c) I skipped the Audyssey set up but can no longer get back to set up on the TV. (d) there is a set up button on the remote, which doesn't change the 8801 screen.
I know this is long, but it's been frustrating and befuddling, and feel I must have missed something simple. I have downloaded the manual and looked through it, to no avail.
I appreciate any suggestions and solutions.
